    So based on what has been announced about the G6, would you get it or stick with the V20? I have a G5, but thought about getting the G6, but I hear the V20 is an awesome phone. Thoughts?

    What's your screen size preference? What's your stance on removable battery? Do you care about water resistance?

    Don't care about removable battery either way, I like bigger screens due to videos and my aging eyes and I'm indifferent about water resistance.

    I can't imagine the camera being worse than the V20. So I'd trade the V20 in a heartbeat fit the G6 given the specs.

    I replied to the thread in the G6 forum but I'll put it here as well.

    I have the V20 and it's a great phone. If the price is right on the G6 and the main camera is better in full auto then I'll likely make the switch. An improved wide angle camera is already a plus for the G6.

    As long as the audio output doesn't suck and the camera is improved I'll likely switch as I'm really becoming a huge LG fan. But then again I love this phone so maybe I'll stick it out until Google I/O or whenever they announce a new pixel.

    As a JOD T-Mobile customer, I will only get a Pixel if T-Mobile carries it. I like having T-Mobile guarantee my resell value, especially with how fast prices plummet on LG phones on the used market. I have 2 more jumps between now and October so we'll see what happens with the G6 and go from there.

    I would likely prefer the G6. I've held the V20 a few times, and it feels enormous in the hand. The biggest thing I think you would miss out on is the quad dac in the US version, which may or may not matter to you.

    The only thing I see that is truly an upgrade if the HDR compatible screen. No DAC, no removable battery. Half the internal storage. If I were you I'd wait on the V30.

    I love my V20s but I may let one go and replace it with a G6. I'll have to see a G6 up close and decide. ...or, better yet, get rid of my V10 and S7e and replace them with a G6. Lately, I have not had nearly the amount of love for them that I used to but I still love both my V20s. TBH, switching between 4 phones isn't as fun as it once was.

    Switching out with 4 phones would totally make me feel schizophrenic

    Not a fan of the 18:9 aspect ratio of the G6. Feel like it's a bit of a cheat to still say 5.7 inch screen.

    Cheating? A screen is measured diagonally. There's nothing to cheat.

    Not trading. I like the removable battery and second screen. I like the audio capability and the high quality audio recording..

    Depends what you are looking for in a smartphone.

    Reasons to get the LG V20:
    - extra 2nd notification screen (always on display, LG G6 has no LED indicator)
    - higher quality audio and video recording (professional quality microphone)
    - removable and replaceable battery (G6 has 3300 mAh sealed battery)
    - metal backing, military grade rating (more durable vs glass)
    - 16MP camera vs the G6's 13MP (loss in detail if you zoom into an image)
    - STILL has an IR blaster (no IR blaster on G6)
    - HIFI Quad DAC Audio built-in (trust me, there is a difference)
    - Has a chin at the top and bottom, easier to grip and hold vs a bezelless phone
    - Better speakers since it's not water-resistant? (waterproofing makes speakers sound muffled)

    Questions to ask yourself:
    - Do you need a removable battery?
    - Does an extra 2nd screen seem important to you?
    - Do you listen to music often and care about audio playback quality?
    - Do you record video often and need a high quality mic?
    - Would you rather have a metal rear backing instead of glass?
    - Do you prefer or want an IR blaster?



    Reasons to get the LG G6

    - Looks much better (supposedly with the new glass back design, no bezels, curved corners)
    - Completely flat screen (I think? Easy screen protector installation)
    - Water-resistant
    - Smaller, comfortable size despite the large screen size
    - More color options: Black, platinum, white
    - Wireless charging
    - Higher aspect ratio (for more a bit more viewing space)
    - Has a better 13MP wide angel camera (vs the V20's 8MP)
    - Slightly better processor (SD 821 vs V20's SD 820)

    Questions to ask yourself:
    - Do you need a water-resistant phone?
    - Do you need a more compact design?
    - Do you need wireless charging?
    - Do you care about the looks of your phone?
    - Do you NOT need the following features: removable battery, IR blaster, HIFI Quad DAC Audio, HD microphone recording, 2nd screen, military grade standard phone?

    By the way, I'm sticking with my V20, it still is impressive with all the features it has. A removable battery and an IR blaster is a privilege nowdays (even an SD card slot!), before it was standard. Don't say we don't need it, that's what Apple said about the headphone jack.

    Just my opinion so no flames 😀 but the G6 doesn't seem as much of a flagship as the V20.

    And the aspect ratio actually will use LESS of the full screen when watching movies that are in traditional format. When you play a 16:9 movie on a 18:9 screen, you'll end up with bars on the left and right sides.

    It is starting to feel that way. I've decided to just use the V20s for a while. I'll maybe swap between them once a week. The thing I keep noticing about the V10 is the weight. Either its heavy or the V20s and S7e are light.

    You guys wanna know what my only annoyance is with my V20?? I accidentally press the volume buttons every damn day!! So....damn...annoying! Why oh why did they move them from the back where I never accidentally pressed them?!?!? I practically blast my ears everyday or I don't hear my phone ringing because I accidentally pressed these damn buttons!!

    So I went with a Mint Condition V20 on Swappa. The size is bigger than I'm used to, but I guess I will get used to it. I chose the V20 because I have a G5 and I love it, but I wanted something more complete with a bigger battery. As much as the G6 looks awesome, I can't imagine I'll be unhappy with the V20 and I can't justify it right now to buy the 6 outright. Something pulled me to the V20 more.
